Aries First Decan (March 21st - 30th)
This Aries/MARS decan of Aries is, of course, the most typical. Very much of what was covered above applies fully, but there is more. Aries - natural ruler of the first house of personality and appearance - -makes you the possessor of an accented ego. You are not much of a "me-too" person; you are the real "I-am" type. While this ascendant can give you an abundance of energy and drive, it can result in many ego clashes with others if you fail to control your tendency to come on too strong. Some people may feel somewhat threatened by you.
Mars is both the ruler and Subruler, accentuating the personality with extra force and impact. Being a dominant person sometimes being too aggressive. Mars, in double influence, shapes almost all Aries-Aries Decan into highly energized pistols of raw drive. I’ll bet they don’t sleep much.

Aries Third Decan (April 10th - 20th)

Sagittarius - natural ruler of the ninth house of the higher mind; persons, matters, and things at or from a difference; long-distance travel; religion and philosophy - causes you to be interested in "mental matters". While you have the strong Aries/Mars drive, you are more able to modify your approach so that you can adjust from a "hard push" to a "soft pedal" if the former seems not to be appropriate or working as well as it should.
No question, aggressive as any Aries must be, but flexible to an extent that no other Aries can be. Jupiter is usually seen as the planet of expansion. Aries-Sagittarius life is simply a treasure trove of possibilities to be explored. The expansion qualities of Jupiter combine with the Aries MARS that gives them a wide or lofty outlook, a love of ambitious ideas and of travel.
